Let's Eat! - a nutrition freebie!

If you have been following my blog for a while now, you will know how much I enjoy eating a sweet treat (or two!).
That's why when I teach our Nutrition Unit, I have to control myself from bringing in such treats for myself as I want to set an example for my kiddies (this is VERY difficult!).
(Pssst....I do keep a small stash of those tiny Smarties boxes in my desk...just in case of emergencies!).
I created this Teacher Big Book and Student Emergent Reader as part of my Nutrition Unit. 
You can download your copy here for free.

If you do download it, please leave me feedback either here or on TpT.  I appreciate it!

Here are a few things we did while we are learning about healthy and unhealthy foods.

This is our Chit Chat message from one morning.  I took Deanna Jump's idea and have been using it since the first day of school - the kids love it!
Here the students are sorting foods into healthy and unhealthy categories.  We had to stop and talk about certain ones (like pizza and ice cream) as some kids agreed those foods were healthy and others said they were not.
I love it when kids discuss their rationale - "Ice cream is made from milk so it is healthy!"
*I agree!* HA!
We read the book "It Looked Like Split Milk" and created our own spilt milk pictures.  This student is still blowing the paint around and when it's dry we will write about what it could be.

You can find these activities and LOTS more in my

Enjoy the weekend!
